This beach might not be all white sand like it's famous counterpart, but it is very scenic and more peaceful. - The snorkelling along this beach is fun, but beware of strong currents (do not swim against, but rather drift along the beach and walk back, to where you started). - Prices at the stalls along the beach are exorbitant....

Though we only stayed about an hour on this stop, we will always remember how pretty this place is & will come back for... More

Lovely Beach away from the crowd and very accessible via tricycle standard rate is 150 pesos one way from Wite Beacg, but if your hotel is already within the Yapak Area, its only 100 pesos.
